The Pioneer unit gives campers the opportunity to work together while planning a week filled with invigorating camp activities such as learning outdoor skills, taking aim at archery, getting creative with arts & crafts, or reaching new heights on the climbing tower. 8th and 9th grade campers hold regular community circles where they are encouraged to examine and discuss their values and how they choose to present themselves to the world. During this time of their lives, Pioneer campers thrive off of the caring and inclusive community that Namanu has built over generations. 8th and 9th graders are encouraged to take on more leadership roles in their cabin groups and may choose to do an extended hike, challenge themselves on the ropes course, or learn advanced outdoor skills. Pioneer campers awaken to the calming rush of the nearby Sandy River in three-sided cabins.

During this extended session, campers may have the opportunity to explore the far reaches of camp, build stronger relationships with their fellow campers and staff, master more complicated outdoor skills and activities, and infuse more of their own creativity in their schedule. Campers signed up for this session will live in either the Pioneer or Balagan cabins.
